Hey purty lady!
I hope the week has been one of excitement! I definitely had an eventful week: I tried starfruit, finished an 8 week class, had the best peanut butter cookie of my life, and went for a walk in the park with my hubby.
I have decided it is time to get off of social networks and Pinterest and all of my other internet loves. They are wasting my life away and they are not moving me forward. Life is about moving forward. So I want you to join me. I’m not saying stop using the internet cold turkey, that’s just rude. But limit yourself. See if you can spend only half an hour doing useless surfing, stalking, and posting. And then do something else.When I say something else, I mean something… awesome! Something important. Something that moves you as a person forward.
I’m talking about finding your flair. Find a talent, a passion, a niche. Maybe you already have one. Maybe you have too many (like me) and you can’t decide which is the most important to you.My little sissy is an artist. I am very jealous of her skills! She is a champion of Doodlers and I love her style. She sent me a picture (It’s not finished! She made sure I would tell you), of something she is working on.
One of my favorite things is writing, obviously. I love blogging. That’s my flair. I am also a huge fan of singing. If you want to hear it though, I’m gonna need some love. Like, pin, share, whatever… or I can’t do it. I’m embarrassed. 😉
Let’s try and find one for you, or maybe help you think of something new you might like to try. A little brain storm action, how about?
Are you a music girl? Then try one of these:
Maybe you are into sports. Ever tried something new like…
Or maybe you just like regular sports:
Like get crafty? Those possibilities are limitless:
There’s way more, but just naming a few.
How about writing?
Are you an artist? I know that can mean a LOT of different
things but here’s a couple:
Have I got the brain flowing? The goal here is to make a better you. When I was in high school, I could spend like 4 hours at a time fixing my myspace layout. Yes, that was what I did. BORING! Was that useful? No! Do I benefit from it now? No! I could spend so much time looking at funny quote pictures, Pinterest, craft sites, but did I ever do any of those things? No! Pitiful. Now, I am trying to make a better me. I am trying to find a goal and purpose. I need something in my life that makes me a PERSON and not just a body sitting in front of a computer screen (or TV or even books can take over your life, though I love reading, sometimes you need to get up and do!).
So I want you to find something. If you already have a talent that you love, but never make time for, make time for it and set the unimportant things aside. Facebook will not help you progress in life! I know, it’s a hard lesson to learn. But I promise, if you do something, you will be so much happier and you will feel better about yourself.
The thing to remember is that we may not know what we love if we don’t try knew things. And don’t give up if you don’t rock at it right away. It may take time. But it will pay off! Good luck, my darling! Take on the world and show them who’s boss! And share what you came up with, or tell me what talent you are pursuing right now! I would love to hear about it.
